Smokescreens and Slot Machines: Berks DA Calls for PA Legislative Action On Unregulated Gambling...
The following excerpt is from Play Pennsylvania.
“Enforcement of Pennsylvania law when it comes to gambling devices outside casinos ranges from sporadic and scattershot to non-existent. That means there are tens of thousands of unregulated, unlicensed, and untaxed gambling devices across the Quaker State. Those machines are competing for dollars with the heavily-regulated and taxed legal gambling industry.
A cloud – smokescreen might be more accurate – has allowed the devices to populate Pennsylvania like toxic toadstools. And that’s the bigger issue, according to Berks County District Attorney John Adams.”
